This vintage book contains a fantastic collection of verse written by Edith Wharton. Edith Wharton (1862 - 1937) was an American novelist, designer, and writer of short stories. She married her uniquely insightful experience of America's aristocracy with a natural wit, in order to construct humorous novels and short stories that boast uncanny understanding on a social and psychological level. She was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature three times, and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1921 for her novel "The Age of Innocence". Contents include: “Artemis to Actaeon”, “Life”, “Vesalius in Zante”, “Margaret of Cortona”, “A Torchbearer”, “The Mortal Lease”, “Experience”, “Grief”, “Chartres”, “Two Backgrounds”, “The Tomb of Ilaria Giunigi”, “The One Grief”, “The Eumenides”, “Orpheus”, “An Autumn Over Tyringham”, etcetera.
